|Horn-nosed Viper Vipera ammodytes at the Carsiana botanical garden. In the past week I "discovered" another two vipers, so at least 3 individuals present in the garden. They are quite showy. I presume the above is a male ("V" shape on the head).
|Campanula pyramidalis, Monte Grisa, Trieste. Probably the most prominent flower of sunny, rocky cliffs at this time of year. Common on the Karst, but especially along the Adriatic coast.
|Kontovel with part of the Trieste's coast, with the town of Monfalcone in the back. Part of the river Isonzo/Soča estuary is visible to the left (sandy line on the sea).
|Pied Flycatcher Ficedula hypoleuca, Carsiana botanical garden, Trieste. One of the many that passed through in the last week.
